At Hootsuite we ship code to production multiple times a day; deployment is automated and kicked off and monitored by developers. In this environment how does QA help contribute to safe deployments with high quality and minimal bugs? In this talk Mike will discuss what Hootsuite’s process is, what is working and some things that have proven not to work.
Mike Hrycyk has been trapped in the world of quality since he first did user acceptance testing 17 years ago. He has survived all of the different levels and a wide spectrum of technologies and environments to become the quality dynamo that he is today. Mike believes in creating a culture of quality throughout software production and tries hard to create teams that hold this ideal and advocate it to the rest of their workmates. Mike is currently the Director, Quality for Hootsuite but has previously worked in parking, manufacturing, web photo retail, music delivery kiosks and at a railroad. Intermittently he blogs about quality at www.qaisdoes.com.
